Advice Leaflets/Links

We hope the following information from NHS Choices supplemented by Fireclay Health advice leaflets will help you to safely self-manage common ailments initially but also to know when you should see a GP if your condition is not improving.  Please take a look and encourage others to look here too - there is a huge pressure on GP appointments and the more we can do as individuals to manage our own health and well-being, the more appointments will be freed up to ensure patients with serious conditions can be seen promptly by a GP.
